Serenity :: NY

Serenity :: NY

Sometimes you drive two hours for a sunset, and end up wading through spring runoff to photograph a waterfall instead. Life, right?

But there is a lesson there (besides a reminder to buy waterproof boots)… Opportunity is all around us, we just have to be open to it.

This shot is a single exposure, taken after the sun went down in a rapidly darkening forest. ( 14mm, 55 second, f/8, ISO 100 ) It was very blue…because blue hour…and color correcting made it look natural, but not better, so I opted for B&W instead!

Sometimes that light is just so dang magical!

The snow finally arrived which has me thinking back to warmer days.  Is it Spring yet?? 🙂

“It is not the length of life, but the depth of life” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Introducing Warren Falls in Vermont. If you take Route 100 in the Green Mtn Forest, you’ll see a very popular waterfall along the roadside called Moss Glen (Granville). Right up the road is Warren Falls, which in my opinion are more impressive. The clear water, the multiple levels of deep, inviting pools and the rock erosion make for a beautiful scene.

 

In the summer, this is a popular swimming hole, and its difficult to photograph. Late fall though, if you’re brave (stupid?) enough to ford the river for this vantage point, then there are some great images to be made. 🙂

The settings: f/22, 1 sec, 16 mm, ISO 100

Our Little Secret…

19 May
Our Little Secret :: Connecticut

Our Little Secret :: Connecticut

A lot of us have them….a place we love to just *be*.  A place we can explore, and play, and experience nature. A place that we love, and that we don’t really share because…well…that’s how you preserve the magic.

It’s interesting to me how wildly different, but equally lovely different parts of the world can be. Connecticut may not have the tallest mountains, deepest canyons, colorful rocks or most dramatic open spaces… but there is still so much beauty to be found in our own backyards. Saturday was overcast, so I spent some time exploring my corner of the state, chasing waterfalls.

Chasing Waterfalls

This particular set of falls is not a “secret”, per se. It’s just not talked about much and as far as I’m concerned, that’s okay!  It’s one of the places I sneak away to when I need a little fresh air and call me selfish, but I enjoy it just the way it is…quiet. 😉
